Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Flowers For Every Season!

Happy Monday, y’all!

Well – once my back decided that it could calm down a bit on Sunday, the weekend went pretty well for me – we had a fun Inkin’ Krew meeting yesterday on Zoom – and we even made some cards “together’!  With our team spread out all over the country, it’s totally cool to be able to see everyone and laugh and craft together!!  We have an awesome team – and more folks joining us all the time – especially with the amazing joining special we’ve got going right now!

My card today is not one of the ones we worked on in our meeting – but you’ll get to see those in the next few days.  Today, I have a quick and super easy card for you to make with the beautiful Flowers For Every Season Memories & More card pack and…yes, again!…the Many Mates stamp set.  Take a look-see:

I borrowed the layout for this one from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I started with a piece of Pretty Peacock cardstock that I embossed in the new Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder and matted on Bumble Bee for the card front.

I pulled two of the smaller cards from the Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card Pack and cut them down a bit.  Then I matted them on Bumble Bee card stock.

I adhered the first to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Using Glue Dots, I adhered a length of Bumble Bee 1/4″ 2020-2022 In Color RIbbon.

On the second panel – the one with the frame – I stamped a sentiment from Many Mates in Pretty Peacock.  Then I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dot and the card front was done.

On the inside, I stamped a second Many Mates sentiment in Pretty Peacock on a Whisper White Panel.  Across the bottom of the panel, I adhered a Bumble Bee-matted strip of Flowers For Every Season DSP.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Bumble Bee mat and into my Just Jade card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got one of the flower stickers from the Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card Pack on the front…

…and more Flowers For Every Season DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I do so love this Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card Pack – it’s so handy and makes quick and easy cards so…quick and easy.  And beautiful!!

I hope you like!

House guard….POST!

On full alert.

I shall not eat while at my post.

I shall alert my family if there is a deer.  Or a mud dauber.  Or a leaf.

I shall stay ever vigilant.

The first, the last – yes, the very final defense….

I will not sleep…

Well – maybe just rest my chin for a minute….

Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Sneak Peek with Video Tutorial for The Paper Players

Hey y’all – it’s Sunday, which means I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – it’s a sketch challenge from our lovely LeAnne this week and it’ll for sure jump-start your creative mojo!  I hope you’ll come and play along.  🙂

If you were able to join me yesterday for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If you weren’t able to watch the live version, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I pulled out the new Many Mates stamp set, with it’s bundled Many Medallions Die set (coming on 3 June!), plus a little of the new Forever Greenery DSP for this one!  And – some new Brass Foil became the focal point.  Take a look-see:

And here’s this week’s Paper Players theme challenge!  Hope you’ll join the fun and show us your projects!  I can’t wait to see what you create!  🙂

I started with a piece of Just Jade card stock – one of the wunnermus new 2020-2022 In Colors! – and embossed it in the new Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.  Then I cut it to be the same size as the front of my Just Jade card base and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

Next up is a piece of Forever Greenery DSP, double matted on Pretty Peacock and Melon Mambo – and adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Using the big, bold die in the Many Medallions Die Set, I cut a Brass Foil piece.  Then I used my Paper Snips to trim the panel down to fit and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Many Mates sentiment in Melon Mambo on a strip of Whisper White, then used the new Lovely Labels Pick a Punch (new in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog) to cut each end.

I tied a simple bow from a length of 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Then I popped the sentiment over the top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A couple of Just Jade dots from the 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots pack finished off the card front!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Many Mates in Melon Mambo to a Whisper White panel.  I added a Pretty Peacok-matted strip of Forever Greenery DSP across the bottom – and some of the trimmed Brass Foil die cut, as well.  A single Just Jade Enamel dot finished it off.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pretty Peacock and a Melon Mambo mat and then into the Just Jade card base and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a few words from Many Mates in Melon Mambo on the front…

…and more of the Forever Greenery DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This Many Mates set is absolutely filled with fun and useful sentiments – and the bundled Many Medallions offers some great textural accents for your projects!

I hope you like – and are adding this one to your gotta-have-it list!

And I can help you get this stamp set – either now as a new demonstrator (yes, you can select pre-order goodies for your Starter Kit!!) or after 3 June (consider an Online Host Club!!) or my Sentiments Rule Special Bundle!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Finn Fan Fix


Wayne put a stick on the dog the other day.

Wait – that might have been me.

I put a stick on the dog the other day.

 

I think I said something like – hey Finny, wanna get this stick?

And he indicated he did not by just ignoring me completely.

So – I put the stick on him.

Figured he’d shake it off real quick.

I figured wrong.

I dunno – maybe he wants to be one of those wagon-pulling dogs?

Or…could just be that…he’s a smidge goofy!

But – makes for cute pictures, huh??

Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Video Tutorial Sneak Peek!

Happy Saturday, y’all!  And it’s the Saturday of a Three-Day Weekend to celebrate Memorial Day!  As you go about your socially distanced activities this weekend, grilling and playing in the sun, I’d ask you to take a moment to say thank you to those who gave all so that we could enjoy the freedoms we love so much!  Our freedom came at the ultimate cost for so many.  Thank you!

Part of my weekend will be spent (I hope!) with you (virtually!) tonight at 7pm Eastern over on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page.  We’re going to play with a sentiment-centric bundle called Many Mates.  With a few other goodies thrown in.  Take a sneaky peek!

I think you’ll like this one so…hope to see you then.

Tonight.  7pm Eastern.  Right here! 🙂

Finn Fan Fix


I’ve had a few requests for an update on the progress of our garden.

So – Finny (my docent) and I, went out with the camera.

Our first stop is the Squash department!  On the left – a baby Spaghetti Squash.  On the right – some yellow squash that are doing great!  We’ve had trouble in the past with blossom-end rot.  But..so far so good this year! 🙂

My French Algarve pole beans are doing their thing – and we’ve got tons of little flowers (baby beans, do-do-do-do-doo).  Underneath – my Buttercrunch that I started from seed (have to keep saying that cuz I can’t believe how good everything did this year!).  I’ve also got sweet onions in that bed – that we started from root cuttings off onions I cooked with.  Yes.  I AM channeling Laura Ingalls… 😉

Moving into the tomato area…

The two big plants in the corners are the tomatillos – going great guns.

The two small plants are basil.

Except…they’re not.  Somehow in the seed starting process, things went astray, awry and maybe even avast.  They are most definitely tomatoes.  I ASSUME they’re Argo paste tomatoes, but…I guess we’ll see!

I kept looking and waiting for them to look like basil – rubbing the leaves and sniffing….nope.  NOT basil! LOL

The Sweethearts are doing well – they’re such a solid performer!  This is a grape tomato and they’re sweet as sugar!

My Ancho Magnificos are really flourishing.  Not as fast as Wayne thinks they should – he keeps worrying that our soil isn’t as good as it “was last year”.  Cuz…we don’t have a thousand peppers by mid-May! 😉  But…we’ve got a bevy of flowers (aka baby peppers, do-do-do-do-dooo).

Finally, into Finn’s favorite part of the garden (cuz…he can reach these!).

We’ve got lavender… with some flowers around the edge…

And the blueberries and raspberries….

You DO have to keep a close eye on the fruit – those rascally squirrels are known berrytarians!

 

Last, but not least, Finn’s favorite – the Pink Peace!!

No more pictures of turnips, mustards and collards…we had two big harvests…

And some gorgeous radishes!

So – there you have it!  The garden is doing its thing! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Sending You Pleased as Punch Timeless Tulips

Well.  It’s Monday.  More to the point – are you sitting down!?  It’s the 30th of March.  Which makes tomorrow the 31st.

Which ALSO means that tomorrow is the LAST DAY of Sale-A-Bration! 🙁

And – it’s the last day that the Coordination Products will be available! 🙁 🙁

So – if you’re still wanting ANYTHING – SAB or Coordinating Product – you need to get busy right now!

And if you’ve been on the fence about joining the Stampin’ Up! family – now is a great time to pick a side – cuz you get SO much more bang for your Starter-Kit-Buck during Sale-A-Bration!!  Give me a holler if you’d like more info….

I decided to make a little card for you today that showcases a couple of fun products – one from the Coordinating Products (the Pleased as Punch DSP) and the other from SAB (the Sending Thoughts stamp set).  And I added in a little Timeless Tulip bundle, too.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge

And the Spring-y color palette is from the Color Throwdown!

I’ve also got all the elements from the As You See It challenge!

I started with a piece of Petal Pink paper from the Pleased As Punch DSP (a Coordinating Product) that I matted on Highland Heather for the card front.  I wrapped a length of 3/8″ Purple Tricolor Ribbon around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I used the Tulip Builder Punch to punch out two pink and one purple tulip from the Pleased As Punch DSP (did you know there’s also paper that coordinates with the Umbrella Builder, the Small Bloom Punch AND the Heart Punch Pack?!?).  I adhered the two purple tulips to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the Sending You Thoughts (free with a $50 purchase during SAB – so…thru tomorrow – then it’s GONE!) sentiment in Highland Heather.  Then I cut it with a Rectangle Stitched Die and adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a bow with the Tricolor Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

I used two double-stacks of Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the pink tulip over the bow.

A few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels finished off the card front!

On the inside, I added a second Sending You Thoughts sentiment in Highland Heather to a Whisper White panel.  Over the top, I stamped a small tulip from the Timeless Tulip stamp set in Petal Pink.  Then I tucked a Champage Rhinestone in to finish it off!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Highland Heather mat, then into my Petal Pink card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a couple more Petal Pink tulips on the front…

…and some more of the Pleased As Punch DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Tulips just shout SPRING from the top of their lungs (or – they would if they HAD lungs!).  I love the Timeless Tulips bundle – and it’s so cool that you can punch out all sorts of pretty tulips from the Pleased As Punch DSP!!

PLEASED AS PUNCH DESIGNER SERIES PAPER

And Sending Thoughts is one of my favorite sentiment sets ever – and it’s made even better by being FREE.  Well – for today and tomorrow.  THEN it’ll be gone!  So – get these goodies quick like a bunny!

I hope you like and – if you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Stampin’ Up! Check You Out Congratulations!

Happy Friday!  I hope your week has gone well – we’ve been getting back into the swing of things.  And trying to figure out what time zone we’re in! LOL!

Speaking of time-zones – if you live in Alabama – this is your Tax-Free Weekend!  Read down below to see what SU! products qualify for this big savings – then get shopping (and earn you some Bonus Days coupons while you’re at it!).

I’ve got a cute little number for you today, using a stamp set that you may have missed in your early looks thru the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  This one is called Check You Out – and…it’s totes adorbs!  Check it out!

How cute is that little owl?!?

I took inspiration for the layout from this week’s Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge.

And the colors are from The Paper Players color challenge.

I started with a Basic Gray card base and stamped it all over with books from the Check You Out set.  I put all three book images onto an acrylic block, inked them with Blueberry Bushel and stamped them multiple times across the card front.

I used a piece of Granny Apple Green and a same-size piece of scripty paper in Blueberry Bushel from the 2018-2020 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP to create the card front, adhering them at jaunty angles with Liquid Glue.

I cut a Rectangle Stitched Die from Whisper White and stamped a Check You Out sentiment at the bottom in Blueberry Bushel.

I cut a length of Granny Apple Green 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon, doubled it over and used SNAIL to adhere it to the Whisper White panel.  Then I added a Mini Library Clip at the top and popped it all onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the check-out card in Balmy Blue on a piece of Whisper White.  I added the little owl in Basic Gray and a sentiment in Blueberry Bushel.  Then I fussy cut the image (cutting off the extra “owl’ – what I really wanted was his feet! 😉 ).

I stamped the owl again in Basic Gray, added some Granny Apple Green spectacles and fussy cut him.

I popped the check-out card onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals – then used Mini Dimensionals and Liquid Glue to add the fussy cut owl.  Finally, I tied a little bow from Blueberry Bushel 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon and adhered it to the Library Clip with a Glue Dot – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added another Check You Out sentiment in Blueberry Bushel on a Whisper White panel.  I added a Balmy Blue mortar board (don’t need a graduation card?  Leave that off!).

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Granny Apple Green and into the Basic Gray card base and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Basic Gray owl, Granny Apple Green spectacles and a Balmy Blue mortar board on the front…

…and more of the Blueberry Bushel 2018-2020 In Color DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Seriously?  How sweet is that little hoo-ter!?  I just love the glasses, don’t you?  Although it’s kind of a “fly-over set”, Check You Out is a versatile set, with sentiments for thank you, congratulations, graduation and “just checking up” cards.  I hope you like!

(Sales tax holidays may not apply to additional county, city, and special jurisdiction taxes.)

Finn continues to improve – we’re tapering the steroid cough medicine and are half-way thru the antibiotic.

He felt good enough last night to bring Mr. Reindeer to me… 🙂

He did mention that he thinks he’ll probably need to go back to see his friends at the vet.  You know – just to be safe.

And get…pets and belly rubs!

Stampin’ Up! Frosted Royal Peacock for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s Hop is a sketch challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with –  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop!

I decided to play with the gorgeously stunning colors and images in the Noble Peacock Suite – including the Royal Peacock stamp set, bundled Detailed Peacock Dies and the Noble Peacock Specialty DSP and Foil.  Take a look-see:

And here’s the sketch that inspired us all today!

I started with a piece of the Old Olive Noble Peacock Foil and embossed it in the Beads & Baubles Embossing Folder – and that became the card front.

Using a piece of the Pretty Peacock paper in the Noble Peacock Specialty DSP, I took the edgelit die from the new Magnolia Memory Die set and cut the scalloped edge.  I adhered that cut panel to the embossed card front with Liquid Glue.

I cut a few peacock feathers from Old Olive and Pretty Peacock foils using the Detailed Peacock Dies – then I adhered them ever-so-artistically onto the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the sentiment, which is actually two sentiment stamps from the Royal Peacock stamp set, I stamped each phrase in Old Olive on Whisper White.  I pulled out the two-die label combination from the Frosted Bouquet Die set and cut the sentiment.  I cut an Old Olive foil mat using the second die (which creates a perfectly-sized mat!) and adhered the sentiment to it with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the flower image from Royal Peacock twice in Pretty Peacock ink on Whisper White and colored them with my Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blend.  Then I cut them with the matching die in the Detailed Peacock set.  I popped them onto the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then I popped the whole thing onto the card front with more Dimensionals.

I added some Noble Peacock Rhinestones to the flower centers and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Royal Peacock sentiment in Old Olive on Whisper White.  Next to it I added a couple of flourishes in Pretty Peacock, coloring them with my Light Old Olive Blend.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Old Olive Noble Peacock foil mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a couple of Royal Peacock flourishes on the front…

…and a couple of the flower images on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  These colors in the Noble Peacock Suite are just so rich and gorgeous together, aren’t they?  And I love the sentiments and images in the Royal Peacock stamp set.  I am also a huge fan of the Detailed Peacock Die set – especially those wonderful feathers (which are stunning and very Peacock-y in the Foil!!).  I hope you like!

Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop thru all our projects today  If you click on the Next Blog button, you’ll go right to Kristi’s page. And you can just click on the names below to go direct to all the blogs!

Stampin’ Up! Amazing Butterfly Life

‘Sup, y’all!?  Week going well?  We’ve finally got a little teensy warmer weather up here in the Baltimore area – thank the Good Lord!  Boy, when the wind blows here it is Some.  Kind.  Of.  Cold!  Brrrr!

I have a Spring-y card for you today – to counter the cold, maybe? It uses one of my favorite Sale-A-Bration goodies (and you’ve only got 6 more days to get plenty of it for your stash!) – the Botanical Butterfly DSP.  Atop that pretty paper, I just added a big bold sentiment from the Amazing Life bundle.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Happiness Blooms Perfectly Paired

Good morning, you guys.  Hope you’ve had a good week and are ready for an even better weekend!

LAST weekend, one of my friends (Chris of the Matt and Chris twins I’ve told y’all about!) asked his sweet girlfriend to marry him and, not being a stupid girl – she said YES!!  Whoo-hoo!!  So – I needed to make a card for them – one not to froofy (for him), but….sweet enough for her!

The Happiness Blooms suite seemed like just the ticket, so – out it came!  And I used a sentiment that I pulled from the Happiness Blooms Memories & More Card Pack, plus one from the new Perfectly Paired stamp set.  Take a look-see:
